From LS Lowry to Swindon artist Walter Poole, urban life and landscapes inspired many modern artists.
This exhibition features interiors, townscapes, factories and ruins depicted by modern British artists. It includes work by Robert Bevan, John Nash, Leon Kossoff and Sylvia Gosse.
It features many works not seen for a long time, as well as old favourites, the works are grouped together logically making the exhibition flow really well from one area to another.
